    I have 2 complaints about my Monarch CY lathe - the small spindle bore and the low top speed (490 rpm on mine).

    Yeah so do I but the V10P really isn't in the same league as a Super 11. The Super 11 is pretty lightweight itself. Lovely build quality though.

    Suuuure - 110V @ 30A if you're lucky.....

    Good luck recharging a BEV in any realistic time on *that* power supply.
